Phylicia Henry, known as Ms. P to her students, is a licensed Nail Specialty State Board Instructor in New York. She is also a travel enthusiast, who is inspired by all the locations she has visited or longs to visit.

Her Passport Nails are designs based on national flags, geographical features, and inspirational photos.  Henry started posting her work on Instagram several years ago but today, when travel has been made more difficult because of the COVID pandemic, her “take-me-there” nail designs give a taste of a place without needing to pull out your passport.


Piece entitled "Machines of the Isle" Did you know??? The Grand Elephant is an artistic, touristic and cultural project based in Nantes, France. In the old covered buildings of the former shipyards in Nantes that were at one time used for ship construction, and later used as business sites, the Machines of the Isle are created by two artists, François Delarozière (of La Machine production company) and Pierre Orefice (of Manausassociation). #thegrandelephant #nailsoftheday #instanails #bgdn #inspiration #nailart #beautyblogger #travelblogger #travel #france #passport #nailporn #nailsmagazine #notpolish #notd #nailstylist #nailstoinspire
